NaviNet, the Cambridge, Mass.-based real-time healthcare communications network provider, announced that is has acquired Prematics Inc., a McLean, Va.-based provider of mobile care management solutions, expanding NaviNet’s clinical product suite for unified patient information management (UPIM). With the acquisition, NaviNet extends its value to physicians using handheld devices. Prematics’ mobile clinical messaging and e-prescribing solutions will be integrated with NaviNet Insurer Connect, the industry-leading multi-payer portal, and NaviNet EMR and NaviNet PM, both recently announced at the MGMA Annual Conference. NaviNet’s broad and deep integration of mobile healthcare messaging with key health plan and provider office solutions and business processes will give physicians unparalleled single-source access to real-time patient data at the point of care. The integrated solutions for UPIM will create efficiencies, improve quality of care, and enhance patient service and satisfaction.

With the Prematics acquisition, NaviNet will integrate mobile care management capabilities with medical office workflows to enable the delivery of clinical, administrative and financial information to physicians’ handheld devices. The solution is the only one of its type to embed mobile healthcare messaging and best-of-breed clinical decision support into the e-prescribing workflow. As a result, when physicians are in the exam room prescribing medications via handheld device, they can also use the device to receive information about generic or alternative drugs; submit real-time authorizations; and view benefits information in real time to determine patient financial responsibility.


The combined NaviNet and Prematics solution will offer benefits to all healthcare stakeholders:
• Physicians will have key patient information they need, where and when they need it, in a way that aligns with the medical office’s clinical and business priorities.
• Health plans will have the opportunity to leverage mobile communications to further improve quality of care, lower costs, and enhance provider and member relations.
• Patients can expect more informed and transparent care, and more efficient office visits.
